Only director James Gunn knows what will happen in the post-credits scene for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, but he let the world know on social media that he has it written. Which is quite different from his first go around.
In Guardian of the Galaxy, Howard the Duck was the focus of the post-credits scene and Gunn just wanted to have fun with it.
“We decided to do it very late in the game (…) We had one plan for the first tag, and another for the second tag. Originally, we were going to put Baby Groot dancing at the very end of the movie. But we kept trying to think of different things. We had a bunch of stuff with Cosmo, and different ideas, and I think it was some combination of me and the editor Fred Raskin who said, ‘Let’s put Howard The Duck in there.’ What if The Collector looks over and sees Howard The Duck sitting there? And I wrote down the line, ‘Whaddya let it lick you like that for? Gross.’ Fred and I thought it was hilarious, but we weren’t sure that Kevin Feige would go for it. But we told Kevin and Kevin couldn’t stop laughing. Every time he saw it, he was like, ‘We’re f**king crazy! We’re f**king crazy!’ – Gunn told Empire.
Do you think Gunn will use Howard again or will he move on to a different character?
Even MORE excited for #GotGVol2 after our table read yesterday. Our returning cast is even better & our new cast is amazing.
